A Berry kind of Cobbler Crisp

Blueberry Cobbler Crisp (2)

Blueberry Cobbler Crisp 

Whenever I think of blueberries  I think of the time when I lived in Washington state, and my husband and I went camping up near Rasar State Park. We had only stayed over night due to the fact we got rained on the second day, and our tent was wet etc.  So we packed up and headed back home, but on the way back there was a little cabin store on the side of the highway that we stopped at. They  had the most beautiful blueberries I have ever seen. The berries were so big I had never seen anything like it. Since then I have not seen blueberries like that until a couple of days ago when my husband brought some home.  I was so excited and thought lets make the best out them.  Now I really wanted to make something sweet, savory and comforting so I thought why not make a blueberry Cobbler crisp!  I had some Granola in my pantry that needed to be used up so what better way than to use it in this dish.  Now I seem to like throwing white chocolate chips in my fruity dishes, so I did add some to this, but not a lot since the recipe has sugar added.

This dish is to die for I tell you, and of course my husband says the same thing, or well he didn’t say much while eating it just kept shaking his head yes over and over so that certainly made me feel good.  It certainly was warm and comforting to eat and just brought me back to my best memory of us in Washington state, our rained out camping trip.

You can serve this awesome treat with vanilla ice cream, or you can serve it up with just some cool whip or home made whipping cream.  Warm it up in the microwave before adding  the topping to it so yummy !
